Esin Akan, an LBS start-up in luxury handbags, is providing the opportunity for a limited time (until 31st October) to shop in their new pop-up store in Islington.
Prior to launching her luxury handbag brand, Esin Akan worked for some of the world’s most reputable fashion houses including Burberry where she specialized in leather handbags. Akan’s experience in the luxury sector revealed a gap in the market for a stylish and functional handbag for busy professional woman.
The modular handbag designs help women transition to different settings in an elegant and stylish way: from the office to the gym, a meeting to a cocktail party, even to a weekend abroad! The sophisticated exteriors are blended with practical interior compartments to accommodate all daily work essentials including laptops, keys and mobile phones. All handbags are lightweight and crafted in luxury bespoke leathers and linings. Akan describes the philosophy of her handbags as "helping busy women to DO-IT-ALL: Be fit, professional, successful and fun- with confidence and style.”
Esin Akan is a graduate of Central St Martins and London Business School. Housed by high-end boutiques all around the world, Esin Akan has been awarded Top Business Opportunity by London Business School in 2012. The brand has been supported by the Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, WPP - Landor Brand Agency, Centre for Fashion Enterprise and UKFT and has been shortlisted by British Fashion Council, Vogue Designer Fashion Fund in 2013.
